The R workshop series will introduce participants to the fundamentals of using the R programming language and associated tools for the purposes of performing common data analysis tasks. The R programming language is 100% free to use and is extremely popular amongst researchers in both academia, business, and non-profits. It is especially useful for conducting statistical analysis.

This series consists of four workshops. Individuals are encouraged to attend (or watch the recording) for the “R 1: Getting Started…” workshop first; especially for individuals who are brand new to using R. The content for the remaining workshops are independent of each other and can be attended in any order.

While these workshops are taught exclusively using code (i.e. there are no point-and-click methods), attendees do not need to have any prior experience with programming, coding, or scripting. All are welcome.

Workshop Topics:

-- Introduction to Tidyverse packages (emphasis on dplyr)

-- Transforming and generating variables

-- Handling data with missing values

-- “Piping” data and data processes

Prerequisites: None.

Software Requirements for Hands-on Participation:

For participants wishing to follow along with the “hands-on” portion of the workshop, you will need to download and install two things (100% free):

-- First – Download and install R

-- Second – Download and install RStudio

-- Alternative (not preferred) – Create a FREE RStudio Account

NOTE: Please read our Workshops ~ Etiquette & Policies page for pertinent information to your workshop attendance.

Presenter(s): Jeremy Walker, Data Services Librarian, and Muhammet Emre Coskun, PhD Candidate in Public Management and Policy, both members of the Library's Research Data Services Team
